Subject: Interesting Medical breakthrough!

Marvin didn't make the first team in his high school basketball team. Why? Hes worrying too much about not making the team, which of course showed and therefore cost him the chance. This I understand, what makes this film so over the top is the doctor's astonishing claim that over half the cases he sees would have helped if they just have a better attitude!!! Have cancer? You need a better attitude! Got Pneumonia? Too bad you didnt have a positive attitude! The message IS there, just the delivery isn't.

Subject: "Worried Sick" Defined
Although not a common issue in my experience I guess some people can get pretty psychosomatic about not getting what they want.

It was interesting to see a doctor in the day when they were actually respected, and as such, they made housecalls. And I also noted the saturated wall color typical of the late forties. In fact those were the two most interesting parts of this film.

Low in camp; no humor to speak of; bland teenagers without zits or stains on their clothes. Blah.
